Employee Spotlight: Mike Sipe celebrates 20 years with UV&S

Mike Sipe, Facility Manager at our Louisville, KY location, was fresh out of the Navy and looking for a job when his parents mentioned a family friend who worked at Underground Vaults & Storage. They said she must like working there, as she had been doing it for 22 years.

He applied for a job and was hired as a records management clerk. When he got home from work on his first day, he had a message from another company that wanted to hire him for an extra 25 cents an hour, but he decided to stay and see how things worked out. Twenty years later, he’s still here.

One of the craziest things Mike has seen since he’s been here is a Hummer that was converted into a stagecoach.

When not at work, Mike spends his time playing with power tools. In his quest to do anything to stay outdoors, he spends a lot of time working on projects around the house and claims it’s NEVER too cold to cook on the grill.

Congratulations on 20 years Mike. We’re glad you didn’t take that other job.
